📍 Yesterday, the Egyptian soccer player @MoSalah -playing in one of the most prestigious clubs in #UK 🇬🇧 which is @LFC- wrote a tweet in which he expresses his condolences and solidarity with the British people -who is living in the confines of their community- 👇🏼
with the departure of Queen #Elizabeth II
Most of the comments came from Egyptians in a shameful way, and even reached the point of describing the comments as terrorist, as most of them were excommunicating Salah at times and stripping him of his patriotism at other times 👇🏼
out of the bloody history of the British Empire in #Egypt 🇪🇬
I am almost certain if Salah or another Arab player wrote tweets of solidarity with the Kurdish players, for example, who are deprived of their rights in #Turkey 🇹🇷, the commentators would have reacted the same 👇🏼

#Thread #Iran
If you just tuned in, you will see how Iran's TL is full of images and videos of protests all over the country following the death of #Mahsa_Amini who was accused of improper wearing of Hijab.
Here are few thoughts. 1/
Since I attended late Shah funeral in Egypt, I developed deep interest in Iran, which increased immensely, after I visited the country years ago. Unlike Egyptians, the people of Iran fully understand the pain of living under an Islamists regime and have no illusions about it 2/
Protests against Islamic Republic is not new:
-1999 Students protests
-2009 Presidential election
-2011/12 protests (influenced by Arab spring)
-2018/19 strikes & protests against economic situation
-2021 uprising of thirsty due water shortage
All failed to uproot the regime 3/

I too, didn’t forget the history of conflicts between the 2 countries.

On #Egypt’s Sisi visit to #Qatar:
This visit signals a start of an era of pragmatism— a post Muslim Brotherhood era 1/
Unlike 2017, the #Muslim #Brotherhood as a group, is severely weakened, and becomes irrelevant to the relations between Qatar and Egypt.
Its fans can mock Sisi’s visit to Doha but their barks mean nothing on the ground 2/
What’s on the agenda in Doha is not just economic relations as Islamists claim, but there are several political topics on the agenda, like #Gaza, #Sudan, and most importantly #Libya 3/

👀💭 There recently was a discovery of physical evidence confirming that floodwaters damaged the Great #Pyramid & other structures on the #Giza Plateau. Khafre, the tallest pyramid was damaged by the flood except its top. #Archaeology
#Ancient #History #Egypt #megalithic ImageImageImageImage
👀💭 Part 2: The salt contains many seashells and #fossils that have been radiocarbon-dated to be 11,600 years old. This evidence alone can be used to date the flood, the three main pyramids, & the #Sphinx. #Archaeology #Egypt #Giza #megalithic #ancient ImageImageImageImage
👀💭 Part 3: When the water went back to the sea, it took tons of debris from the desert and deposited it along the way. This water from the ocean left behind its unique signature, which is traceable by science. #Archaeology #Egypt #Pyramids #Giza #megalithic ImageImage

Clausewitz said, in his famous work “On War” (as often cited as it is little read), that war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means, well it says a lot more things, but i will keep just a few as i do not wanna write too long.
In his chapter 1, Clausewitz refers that "war constitutes... an act of force that is carried out to force the adversary to comply with our will." War, therefore, is a duel of wills, which, in itself, is not enough, since wanting is one thing and power is another.
Does not intervene who wants but who can, as it is said in #InternationalLaw

To impose our will, we need resources, in an amount that exceeds what our adversary can muster, first of all energy.

Cease-fire in #Gaza holding and #Israel submitted to the first condition imposed by the Islamic Jihad: Karm abu Salm Crossing is open this morning and fuel is supplied to #Gaza's electric power and hospital following a long siege.

After 55 hours of fighting following the initial aggression imposed by #Israel, the "strongest country in the ME" is reduced to fighting one simple Palestinian organisation (Islamic Jihad) under siege, to beg for a cease-fire, knocking the doors of #Egypt, #Qatar & the #UN.
#Israel failed to eliminate or cripple the sieged Palestinian Islamic Jihad that launched missiles and rockets against 58 settlements, including Tel Aviv. #Israeli should ask their political warmonger leaders: This is the life they are offering to boost their party's election?

32 Palestinians were killed, of which 6 children and 210 were wounded by #Israel's bombing of #Gaza following the Israeli initial beginning of the round of violence, assassinating Tayseer al-Jaabari.
Gaza Electric power plant has ceased working and hospitals may stop in 72 hours.
#Israel closed the two crossing into #Gaza, Karm Abu Salem and Beit Hanoun, imposing a siege on the city which could push Hamas to join the fight, overtly, initiated by #Israel.
#Israel is offering the possibility to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad to prove that it is equal to #Hamas in #Gaza in confronting the Israeli army, conducting and leading the highly organised retaliation against many Israeli settlements and cities.

2/ Egyptians tombs contained magical objects & equipment to ensure the deceased's rebirth in the Afterlife. Models of tools, food offerings & ritual implements assisted the dead. In the Middle Kingdom, models of buildings, ships, and scenes of daily life like this granary model
3/ Here is Tutankhamun's granary model. He also had this model mill & stone to grind grain, although he never did such labor in life

#Israel started the round of violence in #Gaza, assassinating Tayseer al-Jaabari, aware that the Palestinians will retaliate to impose deterrence. If the Palestinians don't respond to the Israeli violation of all international laws, it will assassinate another and then another +
Immediately after, #Israel runs to the #US asking for moral support so no other western country dares to condemn the Israeli aggression.
2d step: Israel runs under #Qatar & #Egypt skirts asking 4mediation so it can get away w/ its murder of 12 pple including a 5-year-old child +
3d step: #Israel sent a message to #Hamas, trying to drive a wedge between the Palestinian groups by saying that the battle is only with the Jihad. But #Israel is unaware that the Palestinians are united and understands its dirty tricks.+

2/ Lots of sun in Egypt, but at night & inside buildings ancient Egyptians relied on oil lamps. Houses had a few small windows in living rooms, other rooms were dark. Also dark in the inner sanctums of temples. This oil lamp on a stand is from tomb of Kha at Deir el-Medina. Image
3/ Scene from tomb of Pashedu at Deir el-Medina showing oil lamps in clay cups with double wicks. Left held by Udjat-eye & right by Pashedu. They lift lamps to illuminate Osiris sitting between them. twisted flax wicks coated in animal fat & sitting in oil worked like candles Image

Just had a near hour-long “off the record” conversation with a top executive of @AlAhly @AlAhlyEnglish, on the #AfricanSuperLeague, @CAF_Online, @TheRealPitso and various #Egyptian and #African #football issues…
On @TheRealPitso: “#Ahly, as a club, hold him in the highest regard, though he is no longer with us. He was never sacked & he never came to us with a desire to leave. The mutual decision to part was a consequence of discussions that we had, which showed a difference in vision.”
@TheRealPitso, in the entire history of @AlAhly, is the only coach to retain his position after losing the league title. This tells you the regard in which we held him. But it came to a point where we asked him to make changes and he didn’t agree to them, so things ended.”

2/ Not Boxing day (Dec 26) for those in UK & Canada, but boxes, chests, & caskets from Tutankhamun's tomb. Egyptians didn't have wardrobes & dressers. Elite stored their stuff in boxes. Carter found dozens of wood boxes in the tomb from plain to lavish.
3/ Chests made from local woods like sycamore & exotic imports like cedar of Lebanon & ebony. Veneers of ebony, ivory, etc & gold leaf also applied to Tutankhamun's boxes #Egypt #Egypte #Egipto #Egito Αίγυπτος #Ägypten מִצְרַיִם# مصر# #Egitto #エジプト #이집트 #Египет #Єгипет
